Carol & Blaine’s Visit


  We spent the first week in a lovely 300 year thatch roofed cottage in Suffolk.


Visited the medieval town of Lavenham with its church built by the town’s wool merchants in the 15th century.  Drove through the country lanes to Framlingham Castle.

  Also visited Martlesham Heath - the now derelict site where Blaine and I worked in 1967-1968.

  The next day we took the train to London - the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, and a double decker ride to Trafalger Square. So much to see, so little time. Back to the cottage after midnight.

  Next day we went to visit the Suffolk Punches - grand horses, and some fine looking pigs too. The evening spent with John Fodor and friends at the White Horse in Edwardstone. John plays even better than he did in the sixties, and he was great then. Good music, good friends, good beer, what a night!

  Last day spent in Ipswich, then over to the Suffolk coast - Snape Maltings and a walk on the shingle at Aldeburgh, Suffolk.

Next stop - Shropshire
